LEGO bricks are still as much fun as they were when we’re kids, and we’re especially fond of the LEGO Architecture series, which pays homage to some of the great buildings of the world. Right now LEGO is asking the public’s opinion for what will be their next model, and they’ve even got some amazing eco choices on the ballot like Habitat 67, the innovative prefabricated residential complex in Montreal by Moshe Safdie and The Gherkin eco tower in London by Foster & Partners. Cast your vote now and help make LEGO history!

Safdie’s Habitat 67 is currently in the lead with over 115,000 votes. Built for the 1967 World Expo in Montreal, the modular concrete block housing complex was way before its time and is now heralded as a masterpiece. Prefabricated on site, the affordable housing units feature rooftop gardens, natural daylighting, privacy and a variety of housing types for all sizes of families. The pixelated housing complex would be a perfect fit for Lego and would-be architects could spend hours reconfiguring the arrangement of the modules.

Habitat 67 though is up against some pretty tough competitors like the US Capital, the Coliseum, the Eiffel Tower, the Gherkin, the Golden Pavilion, the Petronas Towers and Taipei 101. If it wins, Habitat 67 will join the ranks of other notable masterpieces like the Robie House by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe, the Burj Khalifa by SOM and more.
